To Take The Nevada Drive Test You Will Need
The Following Documentation

To take your test, you'll need some form of identification, such as a United States Passport, state ID card, or a school ID card with a photo.

Your Driver's Authorization Card (DAC) is your ticket to success. It's a card that identifies you as an approved driver by the Nevada DMV and verifies that you have completed all of the necessary steps to become a licensed driver in Nevada.

You'll also need to bring proof of residency, such as a utility bill or rental agreement, with you to the DMV office. Having this document will help establish that you live in Nevada, which is one of the requirements for getting a driver's license.

You must provide your vehicle's registration papers and proof of insurance to take the Nevada drive test. You'll also need to show that your vehicle has been inspected and is in good working condition before taking the test.

Choosing Northwest Driving school was one of the best decisions I have made. I had little practice and driving gave me bad anxiety, but after three 2 hour courses I did great. Margaret was my instructor and she was awesome! She made me so comfortable in such a short amount of time. She gave me so much confidence...

At NWDS, our students have a 98% success rate for passing their drive test the first time! For those who do not take lessons with NWDS, only around 50% of people who take their drive test in Nevada pass it on the first attempt. If, however, you don't pass it the first time, you can retake the test as many times as needed until you pass.

The drive test determines whether you have the skills and knowledge to drive safely. While it can seem intimidating, with practice and good instruction, you'll have all the skills and experience you need to pass your drive test the first time.

Some of the most common mistakes made on drive tests are not following the directions given by the examiner, having poor observation skills (not checking mirrors and blind spots often enough), making improper lane changes or turns, and failing to signal properly. Other mistakes can include not following the speed limit, poor vehicle control, or not coming to a complete stop. All of these mistakes can be avoided with practice and proper instruction.
